That’s a question I get asked constantly, and it’s one I really love answering… really bloody small. The pen I use to write out my pieces is 0.05mm thick, and each letter is about 1mm in height. I will be creating a video to showcase how small “small” really is - check back soon.
Just my eyes! I’m sure it won’t be that way forever, but my big old peepers are currently smashing it.
The technical drawing pens I like are the Micron Pigma 0.05mm and the Copic Line 0.05mm. These are pretty much the only two pends which allow me to get as small as I like. If you can recommend any others, please let me know!
Oh my, please tell whoever is selling their prints at a lower cost to share their business model with me! I automatically include materials, posting, labour, and bespoke sleeves for all of my prints. #justsaying
But in all seriousness… a great deal of time, care and technique goes into what I do, so I charge what I feel I should. If you like what I do, then invest in my vision, if not, don’t. I truly believe that you get what you pay for, and what you are getting is a signed, unique luxury print. If you want cheap, cheerful, non-unique prints, then I absolutely recommend looking elsewhere because there are an abundance of them, and many of them are truly wonderful. Although… I can be cheerful too!
This is probably really uncool of me to admit, but I absolutely sat down and wrote out every single letter and word. I love it.
I love Disney too, and for that reason I have to say no. Disney's characters belong to Disney; they have created, illustrated, marketed and bought their characters to life. For me, to create a piece based on one of their designs is heavily infringing copyright law. There are many artists who will do it because it’s a source of increased traffic and profit, but out of respect for the creators, I will only create work based on real people or characters which have now passed into the public domain (are copyright free).
If you get a license or written permission from Disney, then let's absolutely make this happen!
Same goes for Harry Potter and every other recognisable TV/Film character.
Nope. I only use photoshop to get rid of the bits of dust and dirt that show up when I scan in my work. No matter how much I clean my scanner, a piece of dust will always magically make its way onto the piece. I use photoshop to remove it, and that’s the only thing I use it for.
Yep! I'm human and decided to leave it in as part of the story. With larger bodies of text, I allow the mistakes to remain, but with patterned text I have to start all over again if I make a mistake.
It really depends... if I don't have a lot on, then I can usually turn a small piece over in a week. However, if I have a few orders backed up then it could be a few weeks. I will be in touch with you right at the beginning and keep you informed the whole way through.
